Due to the weather, Hoops for Hamza will be rescheduled. On as Scheduled: JMB Rock & Roll Revival and Parkside CTE Open House/SkillsUSA Competition
Please see information below on three events this weekend, one of which will be rescheduled due to today’s weather closing and two others that are on as scheduled.
POSTPONED, NEW DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON:
The Hoops for Hamza fundraiser event at Bennett Middle School that was scheduled for Friday night has been postponed due to school being closed today. The event will be rescheduled and a new date will be announced soon. The event will be held in memory of BMS student Sammy Hamza, who died Jan. 30 of leukemia. Proceeds will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to support leukemia research, at the request of the Hamza family. Sammy’s family will be at the event, and his two brothers will play in the students vs. staff basketball game while wearing his jersey, which will then be retired. This event has been organized by a Bennett Middle Destination Imagination team and will include a silent auction, staff vs. student basketball games (boys team vs. male staff, girls team vs. female staff), a performance by the step team and special guests, and your first chance to purchase a piece of the old BMS gym floor. Thank you in advance for coming out to honor Sammy’s memory, support his family, and help raise funds for leukemia research. 410-677-5140
